Isn’t it funny how you can just spot pro-caliber photos? They stand out. They POP in some special way. Know why? Here’s a hint: they masterfully add LIGHT to their photos. This new in-depth course is designed to help you give your photos that unmistakeable, polished, jaw-dropping “professional” look. Found here: Advanced Off-Camera Flash Photography
In the past, “adding light” required expensive, cumbersome studio gear that only the pros could afford (and which required a crew of assistants to take on location). Today, off-camera flash allows you to quickly and easily create professional-looking lighting—with a small kit of gear that fits in your bag.
But the right know-how is essential. There’s a dizzying array of complicated flashes, flash triggers, light modifiers and gadgets out there, all claiming to be indispensable. This course will cut through the noise and show you the handful of truly essential, inexpensive items that Phil Steele has settled on after nearly a decade of off-camera flash photography.
You’ll also see exactly how Steele uses it all in real-world shooting situations—ranging from headshots and portraits to fashion, locations, architecture, and even product photography.
